Fáilte Romhat go Rang a Sé!!!!!!!!


Cavan Institute Trip


6th Class were invited to Cavan Institute on Friday the 20th of October for Maths Week. We had such a fantastic time with Nora and James! We learned about juggling and the maths behind it. James did lots of tricks on his unicycle. He explained to us about gravity and we performed different experiments. We learned about Parabola, which is a special curve, shaped by an arch. He demonstrated this using his juggling skills. We also tested this idea out using nerf guns. Check out our photos from our fun day!






We’ve had a busy start to 6th class. Here are the some of the art pieces that we created in the first term.

After a long summer off, we kicked off the year to an active start with Hockey in PE!!


Science Experiments

We had great fun carrying out experiments in Science. We learned about sound and how it travels through various materials.

Junior Entrepreneur Programme 



We recently held our Dragons Den Day for our Junior Entrepreneur Project. Mr. McCartin, Ms. Cunningham and Mr. Oliver Reilly were the Dragons on the day. Eight groups from 6th class presented their project ideas to the dragons. All eight ideas were excellent and the dragons had a really hard decision to make. The Overall winner was the keychains/photographs and  we can’t wait to start making our product! 




A big thank you to Rodney Dolan from Centra who visited 6th class students to tell them about life as an entrepreneur. The students learned a lot about running your own business. They plan to use his advice during their JEP project.
